I agree, in addition to the fact that the SHIELD depicted on a weekly television show would be diminished in relation to what had been shown in the MCU. Casual viewers might turn in to see the the massive floating base, the one-eyed director and the arrow toting assasin and come away disappointed. SHIELD should play a role in the series, but closer to the Agency's role in Iron Man as a powerful secret orginization keeping close tabs on the newly formed "Heroes for Hire" investigation/detective/security agency.
